WHIR as always. Thanks.
Player 1 gives Grienke, Marcum, and Ackley, gets Votto and Strasburg
Player 1 is clearly running away with this deal. Greinke is a stud, but he is getting Votto AND Strasburg for Greinke? Marcum and Ackley are throw-aways compared to the others. The young talent Player 1 is receiving is an insanely good value. Player 1 should be shipping off draft picks IMO.
I hope you are player 1.
Player 2 gives Votto, Strasburg, and Hosmer, gets Grienke, Marcum, and Ubaldo
Player 2 is getting royally ****ed here. Giving up 3 young studs for what? Greinke and 2 SP who are fringe keepers at best. Losing Votto, Strasburg, and Hosmer? He better be getting royalties in draft picks. I would think getting a 1st round pick from both other players, as well as second round, and third round picks as well. And even then that may not even be enough. As it stands, he should be getting the top 5 picks for a few seasons from Player 3 if Player 1 is unwilling to move any.
Player 3 gives Ubaldo, gets Hosmer and Ackley
Player 3 is getting a good deal here. Hosmer (and Ackley I suppose) is a very good return for Ubaldo. Player 3 isn't getting nearly as good a deal as Player 1 though, so I don't see why he should be moving anything more than a couple of high round picks (a couple of top 5 picks).
With 140 keepers, draft picks aren't going to mean much. Player 2 is getting the shaft here, while Player 1 makes out like a bandit. This is one of the more lopsided deals I have seen. And to top things off, Player 1 has convinced both of the other guys that Player 3 needs to give out picks to Player 2. Priceless!
Maybe I'm missing something here, but why is Player 2 even in the league? The deal he is getting is one of the worst things I've ever seen.
EDIT- Does your league give some sort of huge advantage to SP (more so than a normal points league)?
